    Description

    Symphony Hour Sylvester Macaroni Production Cel Setup and Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1942). "I'm sick... I'm a bust... I'M A RUINED MAN!" screams Sylvester Macaroni (Pete) at the finale of this short, after witnessing havoc on stage with Donald Duck. This is an outstanding trimmed hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Sylvester Macaroni. His tears are on a cover special-effects cel. The cel is on its Key Master trimmed hand-painted production background. The cel and background are approximately 12" x 9". Sylvester is a great full-figure image measuring 8". You can see this magnificent setup at around the 6:37 mark. This short was directed by Riley Thompson and was released on 3/20/42. It was the last appearances in shorts for Horace Horsecollar, Clarabelle Cow, and Clara Cluck, and the last of the theatrical shorts to team Mickey Mouse with Goofy and Donald Duck. Background is OK'd by Riley and has a Disney stamp on reverse. Extremely rare 1940s theatrical short setup. Matted with an opening size of 12" x 9", and overall size of 19.25" x 14.25". Fine condition.
